It is far too soon to say what the lasting impact of ChatGPT will be but one thing's for sure. In a system with too much focus on grading and not enough on learning, ChatGPT is forcing a debate that is overdue. Instead of banning the bot let's look at the lessons and create ways for the bot to help with the learning but not do it for them. 
This is just the tip of the iceberg. In the future we could see electronic textbooks that have a chatbot component where students can have the bot read the text to them then ask them questions. If students are having difficulty with any concept, the chatbot can on the spot clarify and review areas where the students are struggling. Looking at the aforementioned Sal Kahn video and really taking into consideration the benefits to AI that outweigh the bad. Think back to when you were a child. For some this could be the work of the calculator being used and education being in an uproar about the way students would cheat or not know how to count, etc. Then there is the innovation that is the internet and Google. That now allows students to look up answers and cheat. Some teachers have made the changes needed to make this better by creating lessons that incorporate the research that can be done on the internet instead of only teaching those things that can be googled.
